AMBER Gill has ruled out ever being in a relationship with Ovie Soko after being flooded with messages from fans asking them to get together – but she may have her eye on Hollyoaks’ Jamie Lomas instead.
The Love Island winner has always been close to Ovie, and with her recent split with co-winner and ex-boyfriend Greg O’Shea, it seems fans were keen to get something started.
But the 22-year-old has explicitly stated she sees him as a “brother” and that they are just friends.
Speaking to OK! online, she said: “It is a weird thing for me because he’s like my brother.
“I would prefer to have him as a friend. We have never really thought of each other like that – it’s a bit strange that everybody comments on it all the time. I’m like ‘Oh my God, no, stop.’
“He is always going to be there no matter what if he’s my friend, he’s going to be there through my boyfriends, through anything.
“I get those types of messages about Ovie and I all the time. Oh my God, the amount of people that want it to happen.
“But they are going to ruin the friendship! I don’t know why they want to ruin something good.”
She also reassured everyone that the basketball player, 28, is still in a relationship with his Love Island beau India Reynolds.
This is despite the fact India was accused of cheating on Ovie with footballer Kieran Gibbs.
It seems Amber has her eyes elsewhere anyway as The Sun exclusively revealed she exchanged numbers with Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas at the TV Choice Awards.
The two were seen flirting and she’s now considering a date, even though he’s twice her age.
A source close to Amber told The Sun: “They hit it off and didn’t want to leave it there. Their chat was quite raunchy and Amber has been getting really excited about.
“She doesn’t care that he’s a much older man and knows she’ll have fun. They’re trying to organise a date.”
Ovie and Amber always had a special relationship on the ITV reality show.
But fans got extra suspicious when, after rugby player Greg broke up with her by text, she liked a tweet from a fan suggesting she should get together with Ovie.
The tweet read: “Is it too soon to start stanning Amber and Ovie together?” with a GIF of Kim Kardashian suggestively peeking past a bush.
Yet this is just the tip of the iceberg of fans wanting the pair to get together.
POPULAR IN TV AND SHOWBIZ
In light of the India cheating accusations, one fan wrote: “SO what I’m hearing is Ovie and Amber are both single now? I think the universe is trying to say something.”
Another added: “Right so if it’s true that India cheated on Ovie and now that Amber and Greg have ended, can Amber and Ovie couple up?? like we initially wanted?? I would like to see it.”
Amber has been relatively quiet since her break up, other than an appearance on Loose Women to clarify Greg DID break up with her by text – a revelation initially revealed exclusively by The Sun Online.
He initially denied it on an appearance on Ireland’s The Late Late Show.
She told the panel: “From my point of view I still wanted to make it work. There was a call a few days prior but definitely on that day it was just a text.”
The reality star has recently been announced her own fashion line on label Miss Pap.
She said on Instagram: “It’s been a long anticipated announcement by me and I’ve been dying to tell you all
“However I wanted to take my time in the design process so my collection is perfect, embodies my style and more important is inclusive for girls of all shapes and sizes.”
